Dr. Dexin Shi is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology. He received his Ph. D. in quantitative psychology in 2016 at the University of Oklahoma and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of South Carolina.

His methodological interests reside in the following four areas: 1) Psychometrics, 2) Model fit and model selection, 3) Causal inference, and 4) Missing data analysis.
